Lenten Reflection, March 2

St. Bonaventure says that of all the exercises of the spiritual life, one of the most profitable and one which can lead a soul to a high degree of perfection is meditation on the life and death of the Savior. Nowhere else will a man find better protection against the vanities and flattery of the world and against its tribulations and misfortunes. Through frequent meditation on the life of Christ one acquires a familiarity, confidence, and love of the Savior by which he is more easily moved to reject everything outside of Christ.  – Venerable Louis of Granada, O.P.
